Ike X Denali’s pedigree and health clearances


Lynn and Tom have this to say about Ike. "We and all our professionals have never cherry picked the trials we run. We proudly run an extremely challenging Minnesota/Georgia circuit. It is not unusual to see entries exceeding 70-90 dogs in some form of the Open (Limited, Special, restricted) with several NFC, NAFC, FC/AFC competitors from some of the most talented and high profile professional trainers such as Steve Yozamp, Lynn Troy, Dave Rorem, Danny Farmer and Mike Lardy to name a few.

Under Tim Springer’s guidance Ike finished his Derby career with a spot on the Derby list at 22 months. Within a year he was QAA and has his MH title. Running under Steve Yozamp, Ike had a 25% completion rate in the Open together with his win late in late 2017 to finish his FC!

Ike was a sensible, people-oriented dog and a very handsome boy. He was a joy to train & have at home. Ike had a rich dark coat with the right amount of feathering. He was a great Field Trial Golden and also our buddy. He was such a personable dog that pro trainer, Steve Yozamp, often brought him inside as his housedog. Ike got along with other dogs which is important when airing with 15 or more other males while traveling on a pro Dog truck".


Denali is a lovely up young bitch who earned her Master Hunter title with ease. Her pedigree compliments Ike’s very well, she is athletic, beautiful and very biddable.

Denali is currently competing for her Grand Master Hunter title. In her spare time Denali is an outstanding waterfowl and upland dog.
